McCAUSLAND: Kenneth Rowland McCausland, August 23, 1953-February 6, 2018. Ken McCausland passed away peacefully with family by his side on February 6, 2018, at Brandon Assiniboine Center. He was the beloved brother of Eileen, Russell and Donna. Ken was born on August 23, 1953 to his parents, Rowland and Ruth McCausland. He was the eldest of 4 children. Ken was born with special needs but he always strove to be a big brother to his younger siblings. Ken grew up on the family farm near Ninga. He enjoyed telling how his dad and uncle Gene McCausland, had completed combining by the day he was born. His parents were devoted to ensuring Ken received an education and to have the best quality of life. He attended Sunnyside School in Boissevain. After his schooling was completed Ken moved from the farm to Boissevain and attended the local workshop. Ken had an independent spirit which led him to move to Brandon. Ken worked at a few different jobs. His job at Brandon Co-op Lumber yard was a highlight in his life. When his health permitted, Ken walked his lawn mower long distances in Brandon to mow lawns. In winter he would shovel snow. Ken loved his apartment at Kiwanis Courts, where he lived with his beloved cat, “Mr. Tuck”. His voice would soften and his eyes would light up when he talked about his companion, “Mr. Tuck”. His phone was his main way of communicating. He spent many hours on the phone chatting with family and friends regarding his experiences eg. his adventures growing up on the farm. He often would express concern regarding current weather. It was too dry for seeding, or it was too wet for combining. He could recall dates when tractors, trucks etc. were bought and sold on the farm. He was a frequent caller to CKLQ Happy Line. He would phone in birthdays, anniversaries and sometimes get well wishes to all in the City of Brandon. He loved old time country music. His favorite singers were Wilf Carter and Kitty Wells. He would phone the local radio station request line to ask for “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden”. Ken enjoyed visiting. He was always happy to run into an acquaintance at Superstore. He loved going out for ice cream, lunch or a day at the lake. He looked forward to family meals and celebrations especially Christmas and his birthday. He attended Central United Church regularly. Ken had an infectious smile. When he was happy his eyes would beam with excitement. He had a laugh that was contagious. Once you met Ken, you had a friend for life. He never forgot you! Ken was predeceased by his parents Rowland and Ruth McCausland, whom he missed deeply. Ken is lovingly remembered and sadly missed by sister, Eileen Nixon (Brian), brother Russell McCausland (Vickie), sister Donna Deceuninck, nephew Reg Arnold (Tara), great nephews Sylas and Chayce, niece Ruth Arnold (Kyle Berry), nephew Darius McCausland (Julie), niece Pamela Bergen (Brian), nieces Holly and Michelle Deceuninck.

Ken will be laid to rest at a later date with a private family interment at Ninga Cemetery.
